Fatal crawler crane overturn

30. July 2018 | Comments (0)

A crawler crane operator has died in an incident at a wind farm in Poweshiek County, Iowa over the weekend.

Blattner Energy, which is currently installing turbines for MidAmerican Energy at the North English wind farm in Poweshiek County– has confirmed that a crane operator died as a result of an incident on the project but has not released any details.

We understand however, that the crane was raising a long boom when the ground gave way under the tracks. The boom landed back on the ground with the impact causing the counterweights to crash into the operator’s cab. Although this has not been fully corroborated. We will update this as soon as we have more information that we can use.

The Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office and OSHA are investigating.
